    The best aquarium experience
    , May 2022
    Great experience, it’s awesome that the aquarium catches, displays, and then release the aquatics animals. Really good experience, the last part of the whale sphere was so cool. Definitely a sweet find for a family outing.
    GO EARLY! Less crowded.

    We absolutely loved the exhibit of the Deep. The 3D Whale movie was also a highlight of our visit. It felt like you were inches away from the enormous gentle giants.

    My twin girls were mesmerized with the up close views of all the same creatures. Highlights were the home and starfish. Of course seeing the “opigi “ on the rocks intrigued them.

    Hawaii Seas and the Whales
    , Apr. 2022
    Great tour of Hawaii sea creatures and reefs. Well presented and interesting. It gets better and better with the large glassed-in spaces. And then: A glass tunnel, and a max theater experience. Four of us were blown away by the whale presentation. A perfect follow up to Whale Watching and finding the day before. Whales!!!!
    Great experience
    , Apr. 2022
    The Maui aquatic center was very nice From the roadside it doesn’t look very big but they have great aquariums and a imax type theater for a 20min whale show that is impressive I highly recommend the Seascape restaurant (reservations are encouraged) for great food

    Fun Family Experience
    , Apr. 2022
    The 3D sphere experience was better than expected. We were able to watch the turtles during feeding time. Overall a fun couple hours with the family.
    Prepare for a few hassles if you visit the Maui Aquarium
    , Apr. 2022
    Reservation system only allowed for 8 members. We had 9 (4 adults, 2 senior, 3 kids). So, you have to cc another person at the desk. Also the parking idea is terrible. Not clear when it says public parking but its still not free. We wasted time to go all the way back to car and just left it. No ticket/tow. Staff where very helpful and friendly.

    Aloha Dano, We're sorry to hear about the obstacles you encountered during your visit. Our website does not have a cap on how many tickets can be reserved, however, Viator may have different rules. Regardless, we're so sorry you had to go through that extra trouble! As for the parking issue, Maui Ocean Center does not control the parking in Māʻalaea Triangle, but we're so glad you had a great experience with our staff and found them to be helpful! Mahalo for taking the time to leave a review, and we hope you enjoyed your visit overall.

    , Apr. 2022
    Loved the 3D film about the whales. I was, however, disappointed that it didn’t last longer! Perfect sequel to the day before when we went whale watching. Also loved watching the diver feeding the sharks,etc. Got some great video, especially of him interacting with the children in the audience as well as waving me as he saw me recording, and showed me a sharks tooth. He was great!
